Esther Fast for America

  Fasting, coupled with the power of prayer, has been called aggressive humility in action.  Our desire is to humble ourselves before God and intercede for Him to move, as in the times of Esther, to save our nation. At our recent National Prayer Assembly in Washington, DC, our attention was drawn to the Old Testament book of Esther. The entire Jewish nation faced extermination. Queen Esther called her people, the Jews, to join her in fasting (without food or water) for three days before she approached the king on their behalf.  IF you are able, will you respond YES to this call to an Esther Fast for...

First Thursday Call to Prayer, November 3, 2016

Jehovah-Nissi Moses built an altar and called it The Lord is my Banner.  He said, “For hands were lifted up to the throne of the Lord.” Exodus 17:15-16 Every Thanksgiving my father, and his father before him, would read Psalm 100 to those who gathered. Please join with me in our family tradition: Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness: Come before Him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is He who made us, and we are His; We are His people, the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with... Read more >>

Father Protect Them - Prayer for Spiritual Covering

As followers of Jesus Christ, do we really need spiritual protection? Since we have an enemy whose goals are nothing short of “to steal and kill and destroy” (John 10:10), it is clear. Yes, absolutely all Christians need divine protection! I expect we all have a testimony to prove it. Yet what is the foundation of our spiritual protection? In the prayer with His Father, recorded in John 17, Jesus gives us the answer: “I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by... Read more >>

First Thursday Call to Prayer, October 6, 2016

Dear Friend, The horrific events of the past few weeks seem to underscore how desperately we need a spiritual revival in our nation!  If ever there was a time to pray, it’s now!  But not just ordinary prayers.  We need to pray like Daniel did so that Heaven is moved, and our nation is changed. I am convinced that one reason our prayers for our nation have not been more effective is because, while we pray, we do so in a disconnected way.  We pray about “their” sin, while overlooking our own. I believe the key to revival is repentance,... Read more >>

PRAY AS ONE - 40 Days of Prayer for the Elections

“So that with one mind and one voice, you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” - Romans 15:6 As Christians, we believe in the power of intercessory prayer. As the late minister James Edwin Orr once said, “No great spiritual awakening has begun anywhere in the world apart from united prayer.” Across the nation, leaders are hearing the Lord say that the U.S. is going to experience a great awakening. As One is a national call to prayer. The basic strategy revolves around a 40-day period of prayer-walking, fasting, and corporate prayer events. This united prayer initiative begins on...

Fall 2016 Update from Lisa Crump

How are you feeling about the course of our nation?  Will this upcoming election solve our problems and address our concerns?  No matter the political outcome, we must look forward with hope, embracing the truth represented in our national motto, that it is truly, “In God We Trust”.  Truly only the Lord can change the course of this nation, and we are thankful, that despite what we hear in the news, our great and faithful God is listening to the effective, fervent prayers of His people, and they are ‘availing much’! At the National Day of Prayer Task Force, we... Read more >>

First Thursday Call to Prayer, September 1st, 2016

Dear National Day of Prayer Leader… Please pray with me for one hour as God leads you on this first Thursday in September.  Although we will be praying at separate times and in separate locations, our spirits will be joined as together we humble ourselves, seek God’s face, pray, repent of our sin, and ask God to hear our prayer, forgive our sin, and heal America from the inside out. The following prayer is one I have written.  I share it with you so that we can stay on the “same page” in our prayers. Please use it as a... Read more >>

Cry Out America! - September 11th

America is Desperate for a Change Present conditions in the church and nation demand united, decisive action. We need more than one positive election . . . one godly, Supreme Court decision . . . one good sermon series or one significant, local church revival. America is desperate for a change. Overall church attendance is declining. An entire generation is emerging with little understanding of absolute truth. The only hope for change is in the spiritual climate of our nation, and it begins at the grassroots level. Read more >>

First Thursday Call to Prayer, August 4th, 2016

I am coming to the end of our two-week family vacation. I have loved every minute from walking the beach early each morning, to basking in the sun for hours, to playing bocce ball in the sand.  My favorite times have been my own extended quiet times, as well as when the family has shared God’s Word together in devotions and as we have listened to God Speaking. But I have also made the time to read.  One of the books I have read is by Dave Butts, entitled Forgotten Power. In it he has some memorable quotes, one of... Read more >>
